Canberra Camps, Settlements & Early Housing


A Story of Capital Hill

Posted by ann gugler on May 30, 2011 at 1:24 AM

In 2009 I published a book entitled 'A Story of Capital Hill'.  This book is no longer available in bookstores. I have included a copy of the book in this web.  The front cover shows Mr Don Bell (deceased), Ngunawal elder who walked the area of Stirling Park and the undeveloped part of Capital Hill with me. His family camped annually on Capital Hill when he was a young lad.  I have included his family story as told by him, in the book. It was first published in 'True Tales from Canberra's Vanished Suburbs of Westlake, Westridge and Acton' [Gugler] in which people who lived in those suburbs wrote their own stories.  Don also wrote a story published in the book and I have included it in the Aboriginal section in this web.  It is the story of GUNGINYAL KOOKABURRA.
